Tips on writing a quality blog comment from Kindergarten students


We brainstormed tips for leaving comments on blogs, then we visited a few blogs from the Student Blogging Challenge to leave them some comments.

Here’s our brainstorm:

Mrs. Rabe's Class comment tips


Here’s the first blog we visited was Room 16 in New Zealand.

We liked their post about art and wrote this comment for them:Screen Shot 2013-11-05 at 2.04.07 PM

We thought your people were colorful. We liked all the circles that you used. We thought the tent was neat to have.

What did you use to build the tent? When do you get to go in the tent?

The second blog we visited was Room 4,, also in New Zealand. We loved their video they made about their field trip. You should watch it! In fact, it gave us an idea for our next blog post!

Dear Room 4,

Thank you for sharing your zoo video with us. We liked your drawings too.

We have a zoo near us, the Phoenix Zoo, in the USA. We have some of the same animals, but we do not have a bearded dragon. Some of the same animals are monkeys, elephants, snakes, lions, zebras, giraffes, parrots, and meerkats.

We are wondering, have you been on other field trips or are you going on any more field trips this year?

We saw that your zoo was a lot like our zoo, so we are wondering if your recess is like our recess time. Do you play basketball at recess?

 We look forward to going back to their blogs to see if they replied to our questions.

How do you leave quality comments for others on their blogs?

What tips can you share about writing quality comments?

    Hello Mrs Rabe’s Kindergarten Class

    We were so excited to get a comment on our blog from you.

    We enjoyed looking at your blog. We learned about how some of you help other people. We thought your drawings and video were excellent.

    We like our people too. We have finished them now and they are hanging up in our windows for everyone to see.

    We have taken the tent down for now. We used the tent as a Paleontologist Camp. We had lots of dinosaurs, books and fun things to do in there. We were allowed in there all day but had to take turns.

    We live in Christchurch, New Zealand. We are all 6 and 7 years old now and are in Year 2.
    We LOVE school.

    What do you do in a school day in America?

    Our day is like this
    Morning Tea
    Topic or Art or PE or Sports
    Pack up and go home

    Love from

    Room 16

      Dear Room 16,

      Thank you for leaving us a comment. We are excited about it!

      From looking at your tent picture, you gave us an idea to make a bat cave to go with our bats unit. Thank you for the idea!

      We have been learning about bats, letters, words, sentences, and about turkeys because Thanksgiving is in three weeks. Do you have a Thanksgiving holiday where you live?

      When we get to school, we put our papers away, and hang up our backpacks. Our daily routine is:
      Calendar Time
      Daily 5 — Writing
      Lunch and Recess
      Music, PE, or Library
      Writer’s Workshop
      Reading Groups
      Science and Social Studies
      We pack up to go home

      We have Zero the Hero come to visit our classroom every tenth day, and he brings us something to do in our classroom. Does Zero the Hero come to your class?

      Alfie the Puppet is our class mascot, and he is currently in Mexico.

      Pete the Cat is in our class watching over us, and he tells us, “It’s all good.” Do you know who Pete the Cat is?

      We have computers and iPads in our classroom that we use. We also have other learning centers.

      We noticed you have “Morning Tea” at school. What is that? Does that mean you go to a fun place and drink tea and eat?

      From your new blogging buddies,
